“BSN is necessity for black speakers! I have personally found my voice here and have hired members of the Black Speakers Network to design my website and do my copy! Brian J Olds has built a fabulous organization and I’m proud to be in it!”

Altovise Peltzer


“I’m a proud BSN member. Community is a powerful tool in your speaker box. BSN puts you in position to execute at a higher level in the speaker industry. Through books, webinars and lists of speaking opportunities they help you to get paid to speak.”

Sabrina Lowery


“As a result of following up on Brian’s invitation to join the Network and become active in the group, we completed a live stream video interview. After less than 24 hours later, I booked 2 consultations, secured a 1-year trainer agreement, was invited to train for a nonprofit, and I submitted 4 Speaker Proposals on the national platforms for global speaking and teaching opportunities.”

Ralph Harper


“The epitome of professionalism, BSN is attentive to Its members. You might be surprised when you receive that unexpected call to speak or be featured on the BSN site. Either way, the exposure is worth the membership-experience. Moreover, the support system which includes a broad range of classes and the works is pretty amazing. It has been a an awesome journey for me.”

Reginald & Hennither Gant


“As a proud BSN Premium Member and Platform Partner, this network has been invaluable to my wife and I as Speakers and Small Business Owners. We have taken advantage of countless speaking engagements in our own home state as well as across the country as well as forge some pretty incredible relationships. The learning and development component, of the network, is an amazing tool that has allowed us to fast track learning new things, platforms, and information. If you are not a BSN Premium Member, we strongly urge you to make the commitment today. You will not be disappointed.”

Rickie Burney


“BSN has enabled me to gain a foundational understanding of the speaker business. Not only have the resources increased the number of speaking engagements I have received, but the I have developed strong partnerships with key trailblazers within the industry. Most of all, BSN has increased visibility and sales of my first published book, Destined for Greatness. I would recommend the group for anyone looking to find and amplify their voice among a group of like minded individuals.”
